Some GOP lawmakers reportedly worried about debt ceiling hike

A number of Republican lawmakers raised concerns over the length of the debt ceiling suspension, United States media reported. They raised the issue during a conference call with House Speaker Kevin McCarthy after the GOP leadership came to an agreement on the debt limit with the White House.

Virginia Representative Bob Good said he is "extremely disappointed," according to Fox News. Meanwhile, North Carolina Representative Dan Bishop criticized the deal, pointing out that the Republicans' debt ceiling bill, passed without Democratic support in April, only suspended the debt ceiling until 2024, while the new deal would see it suspended until 2025. It is unclear how many GOP lawmakers will choose to vote against the deal as the US risks defaulting on its debt on June 5.
